- BROOKLYN, NY
Design-driven production company Transistor Studios has hired Nicola Finn as executive producer. The Londoner has joined the team at Transistor’s headquarters in Brooklyn where she will help to generate new business from around the globe. Her new role also involves production and talent recruitment.
Finn has extensive experience in film production, having worked at agencies and brands around the world including Mother, Wieden + Kennedy, 180, BBH and Nike. Most recently she was managing director and EP for three years at Passion Pictures, a multiple Oscar-winning international animation and film company.
In 2008, when she launched Strange Beast, a London design-focused production company, Finn signed Transistor Studios for UK representation. Together with Transistor’s exec producer, Damon Meena, executive creative director Aaron Baumle and creative director Jamie Rockaway, she produced the multi award-winning BBC “Medieval Mind” trailer.
Finn’s appointment has coincided with the studio winning the pitch to re-brand Nickelodeon’s Nick at Nite channel. Transistor has also recently released several new projects, including titles and in-program graphics for Showtime docuseries “Dark Net” and a series of promos for new History Channel series “Join or Die”, which use a unique illustrative look combined with a mix of cel and 2D animation to mirror the tone of the series. Finn will be based in the new Transistor Studios headquarters on Wythe Avenue in Brooklyn. The studio’s warehouse feel is complemented by custom-built and vintage furnishings. Artwork has been specially created by the Transistor team, including a mural designed by art director Lyejm Kallas-Lewis and painted by Lauren Meena.
